MSNBC analyst Malcolm Nance, a former Naval intelligence officer, called President Trump a “disgrace” for meeting with North Korean Dictator Kim Jong Un and showering him with praises.
Trump on Sunday described his relationship with the North Korean leader as a “great friendship.”
“This was a special moment, a historic moment,” Trump told reporters after becoming the first American President to step over the North Korean border and shake hands with a North Korean leader.
“Stepping across that line was a great honor. A lot of progress has been made and a lot of friendships have been made and this, in particular, is a great friendship,” he added.
“I want to thank the chairman,” Trump said. “You’ve got to hear that powerful voice.”
He added: “We met and we liked each other from day one and that was very important.”
Nance blasted the president during an appearance on MSNBC’s “AM JOY”: “Let me step into the shoes of anger translator for the rest of the government of the United States. This is a disgrace. An absolute, total, abject disgrace. The flag of the United States is flying on par with the flag of North Korea.”
“Donald Trump goes to the demilitarized zone, wherein that immediate area, a U.S. officer was hacked to death with axes by North Korean soldiers by Kim Jong Un’s father,” he added.
“That entire country is a giant prison camp. To say that he is listening and admiring his voice, that is the voice of evil. He is essentially Adolf Hitler in Asia, but now he has the president of the United States with wrapped attention and love in his eyes, wrapped around his finger. This is really going to impact the national security of the United States,” he warned.
